With just a few weeks left in the "Dancing with the Stars" competition before heading toward the finals, the five remaining couples find themselves tasked with completing two full dances on the next episode.

In the first round dance, the pros will choose the song and dance style. For the second, the couples will perform in a trio round with a new twist, in which the judges have chosen the trio partners.

In addition, there will be a sneak-peek preview performance from the upcoming tour, "Dancing with the Stars: Live! - Hot Summer Nights," featuring the show's pro and troupe dancers. The all-new tour will be traveling to over 40 cities nationwide starting June 16.

"Dancing with the Stars" airs live, Monday, May 8 (8-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

For the first full dance, the pros chose the song and dance style that they thought best-suited their celebrity partners:

Simone Biles & Sasha Farber - foxtrot - "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction

Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess - Argentine tango - "Believer" by Imagine Dragons

Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater - jive - "Shake a Tail Feather" by Blues Brothers

Normani Kordei & Valentin Chmerkovskiy - contemporary - "Freedom" by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton

David Ross & Lindsay Arnold - waltz - "Humble and Kind" by Tim McGraw

For the second dance, the judges chose which troupe member would join each couple to perform in a special trio round:

Simone Biles & Sasha Farber & Brittany Cherry - paso doblé - "Don't Let Me Down" by The Chainsmokers featuring Daya

Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess & Britt Stewart - jazz - "That's What I Like" by Bruno Mars

The judges' scores from both dances will be combined along with viewer votes.

Each celebrity will perform a contemporary, foxtrot, Argentine tango, jive, waltz, paso doblé or jazz. One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.
